By D. TAYLOR-MUNRO on Feb. 7 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a longtime fan of Dr. Foth, but much of this book reads like his Daytimer transcribed by a clerk:- visited so-and-so, had lunch with somebody, and so on, without comment or elaboration. It might have faired better if I hadn't just finished Craig Oliver's book, full of insights into all sorts of people and places. Mr. Fotheringham certainly has had plenty of encounters, friendships, and adventures, but they are mostly unexamined in this book. I had to push myself to finish it, first in the hope that there would be more nuggets, and then in the determination that I could review it having read the whole thing.

As I said, disappointing.

Dr Foth's wit and wisdom shines through this roller coaster ride through an amazing life . What an adventurous tale he spins about his prairie childhood, his travels and loves, the journalistic highs of fame and fortune, the adulation and the adversity, - the ups and downs are all there for the reader to share, and to ponder how one guy did it all. Way to go Allan. Here's to the next 20 years!

Format: Hardcover
It's refreshing to read about Allan's life, his many deep connections to family and to the world around him, in such a straightforward style. He is a thoughtful observer of his own life, having spent a lifetime observing others. It's a fun and informative read just like his back page of Maclean's

Have not seen such an entertaining book of this sort in years. Once I started it, I just could not put it down. A great combination of political inside stories, personal tidbits and comment on what life is all about. Written with humour and real life thrown in. After all, it is his life. I would recommend it to all ages. 5 stars.
